Superintendent's Message

The three most common New Year's resolutions in the United States of America, according to Statsia.com are to eat healthier, get more exercise and to save more money. Almost one third, perhaps more realistically, said that they wouldn't be bothering with any resolutions.  Starting of a "new year" in the middle of a "school year" gives all of us a chance to start over and to focus on what really matters.  
 
What matters most related to school children is to be in school.  Currently, 27% of our 900 students are chronically absent.  This is not a statistic of which we should boast, but it is certainly one that is critical to the success of our students.  A recent report by an organization called, "Attendance Works," cites that, "...chronic absence is a pervasive challenge affecting the entire nation."  They also reported that data suggests that poverty, not locale, remains the driving factor for chronic absence.  
 
Data may provide some insight into causations of chronic absenteeism, but unfortunately, that data does not make up for missed lessons, underdeveloped academic skills, or a reduction in opportunities associated with not being in school.  The only thing that will help that is for students to be in school!
 
My hope for 2019 is that we all can make a commitment to make sure that students come to school every day!  Strive for five days per week!  
 
To make this easier, our District has rolled out the MASD Mobile App to keep parents informed.  Please take the time to download the MASD Mobile App from the App Store on your mobile device. 
 
Best wishes for a blessed new year!
